I don't know why people make such a big deal out of the weather people getting the forecast wrong. This weather thing is pretty simple and I guarantee you that my report for this weekend is 100 percent accurate.

 

If I am wrong, please call the show on Monday morning and ask for my resignation. I like the way my weather report gets right to the point and doesn't waste your time with all kinds of "tracking" terminology.

Hey it's July and we expect it to be hot and muggy around here, but the weather people have a term for what we are going to experience this weekend. We are going to be in a "heat dome". That sounds like something you put over your roasted chicken to keep it hot. Are we going to be like roasted chickens this weekend?

The New York Times reports that people in the Mid-West heat dome have experienced "corn sweat".  Aren't you glad you don't live out there? I have been near guys on the subway who were sweating so bad, I thought I was smelling corn. The Times explains what this heat dome really is.

It is essentially a bubble of high pressure that sits in the mid- to upper atmosphere and pushes warm air down toward the ground. The approaching one is notable for its size.

So this is the BIG ONE! Stay in the frozen food section at the grocery store or just pack yourself in crushed ice. This heat dome is going to be with us for a few days and there will be no break in the humidity until the end of July. At least that is what the pros that get paid to give the weather are saying. I am probably going out on a limb here, but I say the heat and humidity will continue deep into the month of August. You can bet the ranch on it.
